31. The Twilight Saga: New Moon

               Dakota Fanning is a vampire.  Now that I have your attention lets move onto the second of the Twilight moves: New Moon. 
Bella Has a BOO BOO!
                Here is the premise of New Moon. Bella turns 18, gets a paper cut, Edward leaves Bella, Bella is sad, Jacob helps her get better, Bella jumps off a cliff….oh and Jacob is a werewolf .  So begins the battle that has taken over our world.  Team Jacob vs Team Edward. The battle to end all Tween Battles.   Also beginning is the torment of Bella. The torment of the fact that she no longer wants to be human, but to be vampire. So that way Edward doesn’t have to kiss her as a grandma.
                This movie is better than the first. I think part of the reason is that Robert Pattinson  is absent for about 75%. Which, ironically, is the same percentage that Taylor Lautner  goes shirtless.  Speaking of Lautner, despite the fact the he was shark boy, he is the strongest of the three lead actors. Stewart improves in this. Pattinson continues to underwhelm. This movie is better paced than the first. Not so much endless staring at each other with longing in their eyes. But Bella really has bad luck with guys. Not to mention she chooses the wrong guy.  

Final Verdict: Actually, I would own this one. 

Other Tidbits:
-Taylor Lautner was almost replaced in his Jacob Black role.


  1. Love the storyline in a flash, Jimmy! :) It was a much better movie than the 1st. I can't decide a team, though. I think, for the most part, most guys are Team Jacob. I know my hubby is.

  2. dulce. its because Edward is a baby.

  3. I'm all for Team Jacob. :) He's a hottie with a body. Wait is that wrong of me to say about someone who is almost young enough to be my offspring? Whatever.

    I agree, this one improves on the first, and it does seem coincidental that Pattinson is absent through much of it.

    I so want to forgive Taylor Lautner for dating Taylor Swift...but it's hard. very hard.

  4. Not a very smart place to get a boo boo. stupid bella.

  5. I don't remember this movie very much.

  6. TEAM JACOB i wish edward would have died in this movie and Jacob could save the day but no they have to let edward live how lame

  7. Well, if you like the book and, therefore, like the plot and the story, you will love the film because Chris Weitz is true to the book beyond what I could have imagined or hoped for. This movie felt like it was made for the fans, so I can understand that if you're not a fan of the series how it may feel like a laboured effort to watch "New Moon". But if you love Bella and Edward **and even Jacob--Taylor Lautner was FANTASTIC in this!**, you will leave wanting more!
